My name is Taylor Robinson. This is my story when I met The Traveler.

It was a basic day, the same as every other day in London. I was finishing up my job at the store in Piccadilly Circus. I headed into the back and picked up my coat and went into the underground.

The station was like every other station. Dull, dingy and full of miserable Londoners. It is an awful place but is a very effective way to travel around the city. Anyway, I got to the gates to get into the station, for some reason the scanner wouldn't accept my Oyster card. “I only topped this up yesterday” I thought to myself. Confused, I looked for a attendant. I saw a guy with gray hair in a London underground uniform stood still looking straight across the people passing by, no movement, no talking came from the man. “Excuse me...yeah hi, the gates won't accept my card...hello?” the attendant stood there, no reply. “I'll try else where,” I said. A weird green glow shimmered across the attendant eyes. I stood shocked and moved away slowly. I walked down the escalator towards the platform to go home. To my surprise, the same looking attendant was stood on the platform. I just ignored it and boarded the train.

It took for minutes to get to the station near home. I walked up the stairs. A man bumped Into me. The man was fairly young, looked to be in his twenties. He was wearing a brown suit, with a bow tie. His hair was black and the top covered with a bowler hat. He looked out of place. “I apologise," the man said. I couldn't reply as he disappeared. Suddenly, my path was stopped. I looked up from the floor to see the same looking attendant from the other station. My eyes made contact with the man. His eyes glowing green, his mouth twitching. His arm shot up and grabbed me by the throat and pinned me to the wall.

“Death to all!” the attendant shouted in a robotic style voice. His hand was getting tighter around my neck. All of a sudden, sparks started shooting from this things head. It had a spasm and fell to the ground. Unanticipatedly, the man I bumped into on the stairs was stood there behind him.

“W..W..what was that,” I said shaking in fear.

“That was a Clonematic, they clone living things on planets, kill them and take over that planet,” replied the man.

“What do you mean, living things?”

“Well, you can't think they were human, I think I made that clear when I said they clone things, they have to be from a different planet,” the man replied cockily.

“How do you know this? Who are you?” I said.

“I'm from the same planet as these. Except they're more controlled, hence why they go to other planets...I'm The Traveler by the way, you are?”

“I'm Taylor Robinson,” I replied, cautiously. This man I had just met doesn't have a name...he's not human, but something's strange...I seem to trust him, after all, he did save my life. The Traveler walked off into the shocked, busy crowd who stood still in disbelief in what had just happened. I decided to follow him. He went down a staff only gate. He got into a saucer with a glass bubble that went through the middle. It was slightly rusted. “Wait!” I exclaimed.

“Get in,” he said. I, for some reason, got into the saucer. Beep. Boop. There was a loud rumble and the saucer started shaking. There was suddenly a flash of bright light and I was pushed back in the seat.

“Where are we going?” I asked. He didn't reply. The light and rumbling stopped. “Where are we?”

“space” he said. It was beautiful. The glistening of clusters of stars. The sun of our solar system all the way in the distance,it was the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. My name is Taylor Robinson and this is my story with The Traveler.
